White House Pastry Chef Bill Yosses -- I Didn't Butter Up Obama


White House Executive Pastry Chef Bill Yosses admits ... it looks pretty incriminating -- carrying his luggage on the streets of D.C. after announcing he's quitting. 

Our photog Colin did a masterful job -- we think -- getting the downlow on the resignation.  Bill shoots down rumors he butted heads with Michelle Obama over sugary and buttery desserts -- he says they were more like partners in crime.

Bill doesn't seem to think you need butter and sugar for deliciousness ... Hmmm.

Bill's official reason for resigning in June -- he wants to spend more time with his husband in NYC .

Good job, Colin.
